Speaker

Dwight K. Nelson

Since 1983, Dwight Nelson has served as lead pastor of the Pioneer Memorial Church on the campus of Andrews University. He preaches on the “New Perceptions” telecast, teaches at the theological seminary and has written some books, including The Chosen. He and his wife, Karen, are blessed with two married children and 2 granddaughters.

What do you get for the God who has everything? Especially if He already gave everything He had for you? Jesus gave us the answer in John 15:13 "Greater love has no man than this; to lay down one's life for one's friends."

John 15:13—“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

 

  • G. Campbell Morgan: “God is not bound to do anything for man. Man has forfeited his whole claim upon God by sin. There is absolutely no reason why the distorted and ruined image should be redeemed or reconstructed. . . . But the very ruin of man included within it man’s spoiling, and man’s sorrow, creating a great cry which appealed to the Infinite Love of the Infinite Heart. The call of man in his ruin Love heard, and Love answered, in the gift of Christ, Who is Himself, to traverse the path of pain and suffering, to the final and absolute limit, that out of all this, man might be lifted into the realm where it will be possible to fulfill the initial purpose of his creation, and thus satisfy the purpose of God, which is the purpose of Love.” (The Crises of the Christ 61)
  • Ellen White: “It is through the gift of Christ that we receive every blessing. Through that gift there comes to us day by day the unfailing flow of Jehovah’s goodness. Every flower, with its delicate tints and sweet fragrance, is given for our enjoyment through that one Gift. The sun and moon were made by Him; there is not a star that beautifies the heavens which He did not make. There is not an article of food upon our tables that He has not provided for our sustenance. The superscription of Christ is upon it all. Everything is supplied to man through the one unspeakable Gift, the only-begotten Son of God. He was nailed to the cross that all these bounties might flow to God’s workmanship.” (Amazing Grace 178)
  • James Denny: “I do not hesitate to say that the sense of debt to Christ is the most profound and pervasive of all emotions in the New Testament.” (The Death of Christ 158)

  • So give with joy and with joyful abandon!

  • Cpl. William Kyle Carpenter and the President of the United States of America

Neighbor to Neighbor Helps

At Neighbor to Neighbor, we've had a whirlwind year. Our brand new Thrift Store enjoyed a successful opening at the beginning of November, thanks to our dedicated volunteers and wonderful patrons. Sunday, November 22nd, was poised to be our grand dedication service. Restrictions on indoor gatherings had just been issued, so sadly the event was not as grand as initially anticipated.

With over 10,000 square feet of retail space that allows for socially distanced shopping, Neighbor to Neighbor's Thrift Store boasts a beautiful selection of holiday and house decor, well-stocked shelves full of household items, small appliances to make your life easier, gently used furniture and footwear, clean clothing for the whole family, books, games, and so much more.

If you haven't been to Neighbor to Neighbor recently, you're missing out on one of the best shopping experiences in Berrien Springs. Our friendly volunteers are happy to help you find what you’re looking for.

Over the years our Pioneer family has supported us through their finances, volunteers and of course their prayers. However, one thing is missing in all of our improvements and new developments: you! From prayer partners to organizers, from greeters to greens keepers, Neighbor to Neighbor needs volunteers like you with talents like yours.

We always need volunteers with specialized skills who are willing to serve. If you have a talent for janitorial services, landscape maintenance, plumbing, or electrical work, you could be an answer to our prayers!

From Sunday through Thursday, volunteers help make Neighbor to Neighbor's various ministries possible. Our current volunteers invite you to join them in using your time and talents to give back to our community. To volunteer or become part of the Neighbor to Neighbor family of "love in motion," just call (269) 471-7411, or send an email to info@n2nhelps.com. We look forward to serving with you!
